An UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE. It is worth visit. Very much clean area and well maintained. It is on hilltop and about 3 kms from main road. There a MPTDC managed resort nearby.

The caves are awesome. I found myself imagining what it was for the basic human being 10,000 years ago. How communication took place. The view is beautiful.

Ancient Indians lived in these caves thousands of years ago. The Archaeological Survey of India has done a good job of making the caves accessible. It takes more than an hour to walk through and see the rock paintings and living areas of early man.

I drove to Bhimbetka from Bhopal. One has to pay an entry fee (per car). There is sufficient parking available for cars/buses. The sign and information boards provided on a neatly laid-out trail help you navigate the rock-shelters with ease. It's absolutely fascinating to see...More
